Pros: perfect for apfelwine
Cons: sucks to clean
Recommended? Nosince i've gotten away from secondary, i only use this for apfelwine at the moment. It is a PITA to move, slippery when wet, and clunky.

Pros: glass, it wont leach flavor into beer
Cons: heavy and breakable
Recommended? Yesi got a few 5 gal carboys from my grandmother and i cleaned them up as they have been outside for 30+ years. they seem like they will do nicely and i do not think they will ever go bad unless i break them. IMO they are better than buying a beginner kit, but i dont really know because i havent done anything with them yet!

Cons: heavy and only use as a secondary
Recommended? Yesexcellent as a secondary fermentory or primary with a blow off. still pretty heavy but will leave minimal head space
